Rat anti Mouse TWEAK antibody, clone MTW-1
recognizes mouse TWEAK (TNF-like weak inducer of apoptosis) a type II transmembrane TNF superfamily member. TWEAK binds to the TWEAK receptor FN14 (TWEAK-R) to weakly induce apoptosis in some cell types. It is involved in the induction of inflammatory cytokines. This cytokine also promotes proliferation and migration of endothelial cells and acts as a regulator of angiogenesis. TWEAK is expressed on a broad range of adult and foetal tissues.
